Kevin's Activity Tips:
Learning to surf is a LOT easier than most people think. While it isn't particularly difficult to learn, it isn't intuitive at all. Some people just go out and rent surfboards and try to teach themselves … trial and error is a lousy way to learn to surf. There are important tricks about balancing your body and particular techniques to get up on your feet …that you aren't likely to figure out on your own. Take a lesson… and you will catch more waves!
Beginners learn on a "soft-top" longboard … it is a forgiving and stable platform on which to ride your first waves. Rash guards are worn to protect your skin from the surface of the board … and reef walkers are special shoes that are designed to protect your feet from sharp coral and sea urchins.
I have often surfed the area where these lessons are held in Lahaina … there are a variety of surf schools, but we book exclusively with Outrageous Adventures because we KNOW that they offer the best instruction. I have seen students with other schools who spent most of their time watching their instructor surf! Don't let this happen to you … book a surf lesson with the best!
Get out there and catch some waves! .
